To use this service, patients will need to:

  • Sign and return a consent form (available from the surgery).
  • Have requested their prescription via Patient Access or by returning the repeat slip to the surgery.
  • Have paid for their prescription in advance via the surgery (not the store), or purchased an exemption certificate and provided proof of this to the surgery.

The prepared prescriptions will be collected from the surgery on Mondays & Fridays only, and patients will need to factor this in when considering when they need their prescription by along with the usual two working day turnaround.
